Nadeem, who has been a Wakefield district councillor since 2006, was selected by Conservative members in the city today <Sunday>.
His campaign will focus on delivering on the people’s priorities for Wakefield, including improving transport infrastructure and supporting business to help create high-skill, well-paid jobs.
“As someone born and bred in Wakefield, I am delighted to be selected as the Conservative candidate,” Nadeem said.
“I fully understand what it is like to live and work in Wakefield and what needs to be done to ensure the people’s priorities are delivered.
“And I also know people here want an MP to get on with the job and deliver the things people need.
“It is what I would do as an MP - working closely with the Conservative Government to make sure we get the right things done.
“As we continue to bounce back from the pandemic, invest in skills training and recruit more police officers across West Yorkshire, I will show people here I am the best candidate to be MP for Wakefield and continue to build on the good things happening across the city.
“Wakefield needs a Conservative MP to help improve lives for everybody here.” he added.
